Christian Petzold directs Paula Beer, Franz Rogowski and Jacob Matschenz in this German romance where a spurned woman and a diver fall for each other.
This unlikely mix of fable, sex, break-ups and town planning reminds me very much of Krzysztof Kieslowski. The ups and downs of the relationships can be a little trying to keep up with – we often feel half removed from the deep emotions being churned up. A very likeable cast of modern arthouse stalwarts keep you invested in the choppy twists and turns.
